2) Why teach with data – Kim Kastens
3) InTeGrate Climate of Change Module data-rich activities with a low barrier to entry - Cynthia Fadem
- Predict-Observe-Explain example: Case Study 3.1 - Predicting Patterns: What Does La Niña Look Like?
- Data Puzzle example: Case Study 5.2 - Interpretations: Reading the Book of Earth
4) Living on the Edge: Building Resilient Societies on Active Plate Margins – Peter Selkin
- In-depth jigsaw activity: Mount Rainier eruption
